Burt's Bees - Citrus Facial Scrub - 2 oz. (57 g)
Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub will leave your skin fresh and dewy as it exfoliates dead skin cells. Uncover smooth, soft skin.
How Citrus Facial Scrub Works
Ground almonds, oats and pecans are blended with rose petals to provide gentle exfoliation in this luscious facial scrub that’s mild enough for daily use on all skin types. Orange and grapefruit oils help naturally remove traces of dirt and makeup left behind after cleansing, and sweet almond oil and glycerin moisturize your skin.
Orange Oil: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis. Obtained by expressing the cold, fresh peel of the orange tree, a smallish tree native to China and India, now cultivated in Brazil, Cypress, Israel, Mexico and the United States. About 800 oranges yield one pound of orange oil. Valued for its zesty and refreshing, sweet yet tart aroma. In skin care preparations, orange oil reduces puffiness and discourages dry wrinkled skin. Both the oil and the peel are used to stimulate circulation, clear blemishes, and increase perspiration, thus assisting the release of toxins from dull or blemished skin. The peel is used as a natural exfoliator.
Vitamin E for Softer, Younger Looking Skin
Tocopherol, or vitamin E, is a fat-soluble vitamin that is also an important antioxidant. It is found in both plant and animal foods, but the best sources are vegetable and seed or nut oils as the oils of all grains, seeds and nuts contain vitamin E. For the nutrient to be preserved, however, extraction of the oils from nuts and seeds must be done naturally by cold pressing, rather than by heat or chemical extraction, used commonly in food processing.
Vitamin E is used in most of Burt's Bees' skin creams and lotions because it is thought to play a role in rejuvenating skin. Its antioxidant properties are also important in fighting free radical damage. Researchers have found that protecting cells and tissue from free radical damage and pollution may also help prevent pre-mature aging and many chronic diseases.
Burt's Bees Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products hypoallergenic?
There is no defined methodology to test for allergic reactions in beauty or personal care products, nor does the FDA regulate use of the term "hypoallergenic." Consequently, Burt's Bees does not position their products as hypoallergenic. A list of ingredients for each product is available on individual product information pages on this site.
Are your products safe for pregnant women to use?
Burt's Bees recommends that any expectant mother check with her physician before changing her skin care routine with their products, or any other line of products.
How long will my Burt's Bees products stay fresh and what is the best way to store them?
Burt's Bees products are made with natural ingredients. They purposely present our products in smaller portions so you finish them while their ingredients are still fresh and providing their maximum effectiveness. As such, we recommend you store creams and oils in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat. Creams may be stored in their cartons for extra protection.
Where are Burt's Bees products made?
Over 95% of Burt's Bees products are made right in their own manufacturing plant in Durham, NC. The rest are made by other respectable American manufacturers.
Do you test on animals and do your products contain animal-derived ingredients?
Burt's Bees does NOT conduct product or ingredient tests of any kind on animals. A few of their products contain ingredients derived from animals such as beeswax, royal jelly, milk and carmine.
I am allergic to bees. Can I still use your products?
Burt's Bees does not use actual bee venom in their products – only bee by products such as honey, beeswax, royal jelly and honey powder. However, if you are allergic to bee by-products, then Burt's Bees does not suggest using their products. They recommend that you contact your health care provider when changing your skin care regimen to find out which products are best for you.

About Burt's Bees
At Burt’s Bees, they scour the good earth to find the most natural, effective ingredients to put in our products. To Burt’s Bees, the word “natural” means only one thing. It means, “harvested from nature.” And they adhere to that definition like the strictest of school teachers. There are ingredients that you will never find in any Burt’s Bees product. Things like petroleum which can be toxic. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, which is a harsh, aggressive ingredient used in certain beauty products. And when was the last time you saw a farmer growing Propylene Glycol? Rather than loading their products up with harsh chemicals or unnecessary fillers, they offer you only the good stuff.
